My One Acre

Well I got my house!!! super excited, cannot wait to get in. Putting my husband to work this weekend in preparing to paint entire house...what a job, but know we can get it done within the month. I know it will look totally different when we are done. Seriously, the way some people decorate and color their homes is kinda scary!!

I cannot wait to get started on my vegetable garden and I have always always wanted to grow and old english garden...they are just so gorgeous. Lets see how well I can do at these!

My Almost One Acre

I have found the perfect home that I have been looking for since I got here in Texas. It is not so much about the home, it is about the lot. It is almost one acre, full of trees and plenty of space for a flower garden and vegetable garden. I am so excited. the house is not so great but I can make do and make it look nice...but the lot ...I love it!! Wish me luck!

Another One Gone

It's been a sad but proud week for youngest 'angel babe" daughter moved out and back to California. Last week my husband and I helped her move all her millions of clothes and what not up to Santa Barbara, California, in with her cousin. Its a small apartment but it's one she can call her own, along with her cousin and her cousins friend. They all sleep in one room, all take turns in the same bathroom...but its her own and she is on her own.

It is sad though ... she is the last of my kids to leave (altho my other daughter Lindsay is only living here temporarily with us till she moves out AGAIN in April). I am one of the many women with "empty nest syndrome." I know it is suppose to be a grand time and I am sure in time I will enjoy it but I was the type of mom that loved commotion and chaos and alot of noise from kids, and now my house is almost empty. What do we do when this happens? What do we do to fill the time we use to use taking care of the kids and worrying about them .. altho I will still worry, probably more even now that she is on her own!

I am so proud of her, she is only 19 and just needed to spread her wings a little. She is the daughter I pretty much raised on my own as her father was not around. I must say I did a pretty good job in raising her also. Although she is stubborn as all get out, has a mind set all her own and there is no changing that, is most definitely a "fashionista", she can put an outfit together out of paper bags if she had to; an amazing make up artist and just a beautiful soul! I love her to death and will miss her everyday but I am happy for her as she is doing what she wants to do!
